Review of 40 Bleecker Street by Carter Horsley

This handsome, 12-story luxury apartment building at 40 Bleecker Street in NoHo was developed by Broad Street Development with its 61 condominium units due for completion in 2019. 

Rawlings Architects designed the building and Ryan Korban did the interiors. Edmund Hollander is the landscape architect for the project. 

The building occupies a long frontage on Mulberry Street, half a block or so north of East Houston Street.  It is convenient to numerous restaurants and boutiques as well as subways. 

It is very close to Lafayette Street and Louis Sullivan's great Bayard-Condit Building at 65 Bleecker Street and not far from New York University. 

Bottom Line

A sumptuous apartment building in NoHo with very handsome detailing, some curved corner windows, Art-Nouveau-style lobby capitals, broad metal bandcourses and thin projecting window frames as well as a garage and an entrance marquee.

Description

The beige-brick building has four setbacks above the 9th floor and has rounded corners on its west  façade with curved glass corner windows.  The setbacks have glass railings and the top three floors have broad metal bandcourses with widely space vertical accent marks. 

The building has thin, projecting, two-story-high window surrounds. 

The building has an entrance marquee. 

An article by Keith Flanner in the February 28, 2018 edition of Forbes Magazine noted that "Bleecker Street is one of Manhattan's most vibrant walkable paths," adding that "now, this street with authentic bohemian roots, gains a new upscale neighbor" and that "Anthony Lispenard Bleecker, the banker for whom the street is named, would undoubtedly approve." 

The article noted that a 2,855-square-foot penthouse was listed for "nearly $10.2 million - the most expensive NoHo home currently on the market."  It also observed that "highlights" included "Listone Giordano French Oak chevron flooring (sourced from recycled wine barrels and crafted by Italian artisans." 

"The lobby features statuary marble and dove grey terrazzo flooring, offset by suede-paneled and and Beauval limestone walls.  Two Korban-designed sofas clad in marble surroiund a custom French limestone slab coffee table amid a soft grey silk rug and a black marble, bronze-line fireplace," according to the article, which does not mention the very impressive Art Nouveau-style capitals atop two tall lobby columns, a proverbial doff of the camp to Louis Sullivan's nearby ornate landmark. 

One of the building's main attraction is its very handsome and lushly landscaped, 5,600-square-foot courtyard with a waterfall and reflecting pool. 

Amenities

The building has a concierge, a live-in superintendent, a gym with a 57-foot-long swimming pool, a bicycle room and a garden.

Apartments

Some of the kitchens have marble stove hoods and cantilevered marble islands. 

Penthouse A is a three-bedroom unit with an entry foyer that leads to a 34-foot-long living/dining room with an open , 19-foot-long kitchen with an island and a terrace that is 34 feet long on one side and 73 feet long on another. 

Penthouse B is a two-bedroom unit with a 30-foot-long living room with a 14-foot-long open kitchen with an island and a 98-foot-long terrace. 

Apartment 9E is a three-bedroom unit with an entry foyer that leads to a 22-foot-wide living room with a 14-foot-long open kitchen with an island. 

Apartment 9D is a three-bedroom unit with a 21-foot-long living/dining room with a 15-foot-long open kitchen with an island. 

Apartment 5G is a one-bedroom unit with a 14-foot-long living/dining room and an 8-foot-wide kitchen with a breakfast bar.
